England are still knocking around the ICC World Twenty20 but still have plenty of work to do if they are to make it through to the semi finals.
But a recent win over South Africa will have given them a huge boost after having lost their opening match to the West Indies. The England batsmen really put on a commanding performance against South Africa, but one man has stood out for them.
Joe Root has really turned up with the bat for England at the tournament and his 83 from 44 balls against South Africa in what was a run chase of 230 for the English, helped Eoin Morgan’s men get the much needed win on the board. England now face Afghanistan before moving on to face Sri Lanka in a tough final match.
There have been five half centuries scored at the T20 World Cup so far, with Bangladesh’s Tamim Iqbal, Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad and his team mate Asghar Stanikzai (2) having joined Joe Root in putting one on the board.
